Jensen Ackles, a supernatural star, was pushed hard for Pedro Pascals' role in The Last of Us ...

If Jensen Ackles had his way, we might have been two episodes deep into a completely different-looking version of The Last of Us, at least when it comes to the show's star, Joel Miller.

Ackles took to the stage during a Supernatural fan event and expressed his desire to land the role, joking that he didn't know he was in the race for the Joel role before Pascal was awarded the honors:

Jensen Ackles went on to tease his involvement with an upcoming and unreleased video game, regardless of whether or not he got the Joel role.

Ackles was unable to land what appeared to be a dream role in the critically acclaimed Naughty Dog game, yet he still has a lot to keep him busy — the actor is also set to reprise his role as Soldier Boy in Season 4 of The Boys, and he has been training hard for it.

The fourth season of The Boys will be released on Amazon's popular superhero show in August. Jensen Ackles' Supernatural costar and veteran The Walking Dead villain Jeffrey Dean Morgan is also set to join the show.
